About Chris

I have taught the cello to over 100 students ranging from children to adults for the past 15 years.

I studied extensively in college at the George Washington University and currently take lessons from Donald Moline an ex CSO member. I have performed with new age composers in the Chicagoland area.

I currently have three students. I have taught all ages, from beginner children to beginner adults, and adults who have played in their high school/college years who want to bring up the cello again in their lives. My main goal for all my students is to have the ability to play their cello with ease, natural instinct, and love what they are doing musically. I like to have a careful balance of musical and technical work to achieve goals in an environment for relaxation and musical therapy.

I look forward to working with you to create music! After all, life is but a long song, you can create a melody anytime you want!
